Twitter has silenced Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Twitter… for now.
The social media platform temporarily suspended Greene’s account after violating new rules that came into effect following the events on Capitol Hill.
The Georgia MP has a history of strengthening QAnon conspiracy theories. These came into play via a thread of tweets during the Georgia Senate election that were slapped with a warning on Twitter: “This allegation of voter fraud is disputed, and this Tweet cannot be replied to, retweeted or liked in because of a risk of violence. “
As a result, Greene was banned from Twitter by 12pm.
According to CNN, a Twitter spokesperson said, “The reference account has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations of our civic integrity policy.”
In a statement regarding his suspension, Greene said Congress must “act quickly” to protect free speech in America.
“Conservative Americans shouldn’t be afraid to speak their mind,” she added. “They shouldn’t have to worry about being canceled by American companies where they work, do business and use services. They should not be afraid to submit to the socialists who want to end their way of life.
Greene’s suspension comes after Donald Trump was banned from the platform. In addition, around 70,000 accounts have been suspended for bolstering QAnon conspiracy theories.
